As a graduate of the Narconon Fresh Start drug rehab program I know firsthand what addiction feels like. And, as a graduate of their program I know what true addiction rehabilitation feels like as well. When I first arrived at Narconon I wanted to stop using drugs but didn’t have the slightest idea how to go about doing it. I had tried to stop on my own with no success due to continual drug cravings and a low tolerance to everyday stressors. I found just about every excuse in the book to justify getting high and putting off quitting for another day.
Because of the Sunshine Summit Lodge drug rehab program I was able to make the transition from drug addict to a sober and healthy person. My cravings are gone now thanks to their New Life Detoxification method. During my time in rehab I learned a lot of important skills that I wasn’t very good at before, namely the ability to spot a person who intends to do me harm (i.e. a drug dealer, friends who encourage me to use drugs, people who are dishonest, etc.) and how to handle my emotions without resorting to using drugs. While these seem like obvious life lessons it was something that I lacked and had often gotten me into trouble. I would trust the wrong people, I would use drugs to cover my pain or escape from my problems.
Because of the Narconon Fresh Start program at Sunshine Summit Lodge I have my family back, a career and friends who support me and are there for me when times get rough. I turn to the education I received while at Narconon on how to handle stress when I get overwhelmed. I thank God for sending me to Sunshine Summit Lodge. I am also eternally grateful to all the wonderful staff that helped me get off drugs and get back the life I truly want to be living.
